The Razored Mastermind Leadership Precision Accelerator™ is a unique leadership coaching and learning experience for the barbering industry and micro to small business entrepreneurs-designed to sharpen the skills and strategies necessary for entrepreneurial success across the entire enterprise.
While typical business coaching programs tend to work to shore up the technical skills associated with business and entrepreneurship, we understand the importance of the intrapersonal work that is critical and allows for intentional focus on the whole person.
"Stay razored sharp.
Never stop growing."
The Razored Mastermind Precision Leadership Accelerator™ is a transformational three-month intensive learning and leadership development process geared toward key positions/leaders and micro/small business entrepreneurs in the barbering ecosystem with the ability to scale. We believe many of these entrepreneurs fail not because of their access to small business support but because of the lack of intrapersonal and interpersonal skill building that is required and must be cultivated. The introspective work tackled during the program allows us to build skills and commitment to address triggers, fears and limiting beliefs to move towards a growth mindset. This type of introspective work allows for sustainability and growth.
As such, the Razored program offers a deep focus on strong intrapersonal skills development and behavioral shifts that allows us to shore up the traditional business coaching entrepreneurs typically receive that focuses on developing technical skills. This missing piece enables business owners to thrive, support, sustain, and scale their businesses, which in turn provides a foundation that leads to stronger community impact, economic growth, opportunities, and wealth building.
Customized Curriculum tailored and anchored in industry best practices to reach individuals right where they are and designed to identify, harness, and master critical leverage points to unlock professional and personal potential.

The Razored Program is what every entrepreneur should experience, as it has helped me learn more about myself, walk boldly in leadership, and identify my superpowers. As a leader, I am now able to influence, inspire, and elevate with this new tool I have in my box.

Our approach utilizes a leadership coaching framework that focuses on seven (7) key domains uniquely designed to move participants through a transformational process intended to shift their thinking, feelings, and actions.
By centering leadership coaching coupled with skill development components, we move participants through an iterative experience and emergent learning process of test, do, and learn. In doing so, participants are positioned into game-changer status by enabling them to amplify and level up their leadership, strategic thinking, ideas, skills, and impact.
All necessary components to support entrepreneurial success.
Leaders and game changers need to be sharp, well-positioned and have access to cutting-edge personal and professional development tools to affect change in their own lives and the lives of others around them.
One's ability to shift the thinking and thought patterns that influence our feelings and activate our actions to harness the necessary skills, relationships, and networks to generate the greatest return on investment in self-development is critical.
As a collective, when we can commit to showing up as our best selves in ways that catalyze generational and community wealth and transform systems that create inequities for black and brown entrepreneurs, we can transform whole communities.

I consider the Razored program one of, if not the most important and sharpest tool in our toolbox.
- Jermaine Johnson
The Razored program was transformational. I learned a great deal about the most important and sharpest tool in my barber kit, and that would be me. The program also helped me take a deep dive into not only who I am as a barber but also what is necessary for me to grow professionally and personally.
- Eric Hines
The experience was empowering. It allowed me to be transformational and vulnerable, which allowed a deeper reflection of self and a path to bettering my leadership.
